They currently have the #1 with Jawsh 685 X Jason Derulo X BTS’ “Savage Love (Laxed-Siren Beat),” Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” at #2, 24kGoldn’s “Mood” f/Iann Dior at #7 and BTS’ “Dynamite” sitting at #13 and that’s just what’s happening in the Top 15! Can’t wait to see what they throw at us next, as it’s sure to be “Golden,” see what I did there?
